Friday's Feature: White After Labor Day

After a short week last week spending time with family, this regular week felt like it went on forever.  We finished out the Dining Under the Stars season (since it's getting dark earlier, we truely were "dining under the stars").  

Popemania is in full force around here and we are headed right up to State College to get away from the complete madness (seriously, there are port-a-potties lined up at the local train station and half the city is shut down) - I'm more than happy watching all the excitement on TV, a much better view - in fact, yesterday I sat down after my workout and didn't get up for over a half hour because I was so intrigued.   

Feature:

I am not a rule breaker.  At all with anything.  I've always firmly believed white pants/shorts are okay after Memorial Day and until Labor Day.  This year - I'm over the rules.  I rarely wear pants in the summer (way too hot!) and September is the perfect time for them.  White pants make outfits look crisper, they are my new pre-fall favorite.  They might be my new fall favorite - I am not opposed to the white pants with boots look.  They especially fit in for game weekends at Penn State mixed with navy.

Do you wear white past Labor Day?? Before Memorial Day?? 

Look One: navy top // statement necklace (similar style & 40% off!) // brown boots (similar style) 
// watch

Look Two: orange t-shirt // necklace // booties (similar)

Look Three: tote // top (same brand, similar style) // sunglasses // wedges (similar style)

Look Four: top // booties (similar) // necklace (sold out - similar style)

Look Five: top (similar style) // purse // watch // sunglasses // shoes (similar style)

My favorite white pants below… 



Other Happenings… 

+ As I shared in the tailgate post from the weekend, Penn State advanced to 2-1 this past weekend - ready for the next tomorrow.

+ Last night was our first date night in weeks (which ended at the grocery store, thank you busy life and football season) but it was also TGIT - so happy to have the TV lineup back.  Speaking of the shows being back - any new ones I should be watching?!

+ College game day tailgaters - anyone have any favorite recipes for noon games?! I'm always on the lookout for a new twist to the early in the day tailgates and we've got one coming up next weekend.

+ Friends, my most favorite show (and most people's) premiered 21 years ago this past Tuesday - hard to believe it's been that long.  I was five then.  And remember rushing home from an 8th grade school trip to see Rachel have her baby.  (see the "Friends" horror movie: here)

+ I raved about this hot pink floral tank and wore it on repeat this summer.  Now there are fall styles available.  I've ordered two last night - they are amazing, you won't be sorry.

Cheers to the Weekend!

  11. I always rock white after labor day! In my defense, if it's still 90 degrees out down here why can't I? Rules were meant to be broken! I always make sausage pancake muffins for early tailgates! Breakfast in one bite haha! Have a great weekend!

  12. I love your white pants! I have a pair of white skinny jeans that I like to wear during the winter with boots. Can't wait to pair them with my booties this year! Those biscuit sandwiches I made yesterday would be perfect for a morning tailgate! I've also seen some delicious egg recipes on pinterest that you can make in a muffin pan for bite size.

  14. LOVE this! I'm all about white after Labor Day, as it was a silly rule back when people would "summer" out in the Hamptons and put their whites away when returning to the city in the fall. And I hear ya on not wearing pants in the summer, it's way too hot and there are too many pretty sundresses to wear. You look awesome rockin' the white pants girl, happy fall <3

  15. These outfits are SO cute!!! I guess I should break out my white jeans again!! :-) I like them with the navy top, that is my favorite. I hope that you have a great weekend!! :-)

  16. As a girl from the South, I was always taught to not wear white after Labor Day and before Easter. But I'm with you these days…I'm pretty much over not wearing white in September and early October when it's hotter than you-know-what in Texas. I mean, I'm not big on wearing it in the winter (other than "winter white") but I haven't yet packed mine away yet. (And it's a high of 90* in Dallas today as I type this. Ugh!)

  17. I'm totally on team white after Labor Day. There is a way to wear white without it screaming SUMMER. White jeans look great with boots.

  19. I love white pants, so I love the idea of wearing them all times of the year! Hooray for tailgating! If it's an early game we try to make breakfast tacos or something like that for our tailgates.

  20. So many pretty outfits. The pants look great on you! I don't see what the big deal is about wearing white after Labor Day.

  21. Cute outfits! I don't have any white jeans to try this with this year but am thinking I need some white skinnies for next summer! We're excited to watch Blood & Oil and I'm going to give Quantico a try but it looks like it could either be great or awful. Happy Friday!

  22. Oooh I love the fall version of that floral tank! That would be a perfect combo of fall colors while still staying cool for SC weather :)

  23. All of the Pope stuff going on is crazy. I've heard of friends of friends who are renting out their apartments for over $20k. It's mind blowing. You're much closer to the action than I am, so I don't blame you for getting away! I think it's completely fine to wear white pants/shorts after Labor Day. If the weather permits, why not? I'm planning on taking white shorts with me to Florida in November!

  24. All of these looks are SO amazing! I have never been one to follow the whole fashion rule on white. I say, wear white whenever the freak you want to! I'm so glad I came across your cute blog. Let's be friends :)

    xo,

  25. I'm typically a rule follower as well, but I won't hesitate to rock white pants after Labor Day.

    And yay for TGIT!! I was completely hooked on Scandal last night.

  26. I'm like you-been a rule follower forever and never wore white pants after Labor Day, but I've been really itching to do it this year with a striped sweater! :)

  27. I've seen a few white-after-Labor-Day looks I'm loving, and especially when paired with booties I've gotta bust those bad boys back out, I do believe! Thanks for the inspiration ;)

  28. You look great with that outfits:)

  29. I think the white rule just applies to shoes! You can definitely rock some white pants year round! The term Winter White is sticking out in my mind. You are all set. BTW I love your pants! Have a great weekend!

  30. OMG 21 years ago?! That's insane! And I vote yes to the white pants after Labor Day - you look awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I gave up on the "rules" years ago.. but I find it weird how even if I don't know the date (I never know the date, ever. Like you could tell me today is September 3rd and I would be like "k") I CAN TELL it's after Labor Day when I go to grab something white, even if it's one day after. I guess my grandma really ingrained that one in my head haha

  32. I think this is a rule that is meant to be broken! Especially for Penn State games!

  33. It's still in the high 80s here in Mississippi so white jeans are totally fine in my book!

  35. Lookin' great in the white jeans! I don't care about the Labor Day but I generally put them away when the fall temps go lower. I cannot believe that Friends premiered 21 years ago. Good lord! That makes me feel so old! Now, I didn't really start watching it until I was older (I was only 8 when it premiered) but my goodness i remember it so vividly! Have a wonderful weekend!

  37. I'm all about white pants all year round! You just can't go wrong with them, especially in the cooler months with boots and a cozy sweater. Yay for TGIT! What did you think of the shows last week? Scandal always knows how to keep things interesting.
